BIRDS are enjoying new homes built for them by volunteers, cubs, brownies and scouts.
Twenty boxes were created on Ivel Springs open green space in Baldock to accommodate robins, great tits and blue tits.
A tawny owl box and two bat boxes were also constructed and volunteers cleared debris from the site to improve the area.
The work is part of a wider project undertaken by the Friends of Baldock Greenspaces and helped by North Herts District Council and the Countryside Management Service to ensure open spaces in Baldock remain attractive to visitors and wildlife.
